spicebush swallowtail

Dear Friends, this is the first butterfly of the season for me and the first of the seven day nature challenge.  This is a spicebush swallowtail on a common milkweed flower, enjoy til Tomorrow MJ

Butterflies-small and large

Friends, the top image is a pearl crescent butterfly with a wing span of 1.25 inches, very small but the orange dot on the end of the club-shaped antennae is the defining mark.  The bottom image is a swallowtail that is much larger as seen on a blue flag iris, all of them wild, wild, wild.  til Tomorrow MJ
